Mandriva 2005,cannot install nvidia driver with geforce 6200

Hi all,

I tried to install the nvidia driver, (7676)

all seemed to go well and the driver installer said it installed ok, but but the driver is not recognized, or never installed.
when i run the installer again it says it is already installed.

I then tried uninstalling the nvidia driver that came with mandriva 2005.

but driver is still not changing from vesa to nvidia.

I did the changes to xorg.conf
although there was no "driver" section,
there is a "device" section however that listed the driver as described in the tutorial.

Here is what the section "Device" says

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce"
Driver "nvidia"
potion "DPMS"
option "IgnoreEDID" "1"

I got it,
All is well, glx gears is working and nvidia-settings works.
Had to redo xorg.conf for some reason.

what should the fps be in glx gears? for a 2000+ and a geforce 6200?

Its about 1429-1531fps
